Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Convinced that Arab terrorists are inherently hilarious, and that shooting fish in the leaky barrel of American pop culture takes marksmanship, Boll is a boor, and a symptom of something sad and dehumanizing."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"It's hard to imagine a worse movie will come out this year, and yet Boll's growing notoriety has already earned the trailer millions of hits on YouTube. Ed Wood never had it so good."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The end result is a film that feels as though it's been conceived and executed by a third grader..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"I guess you could call it a "satire," but it doesn't particularly care to take the time or energy to spin the satire in any meaningful way; it merely thunders over all its ideas like a rabid elephant."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Almost worth watching because it's so unbelievably abysmal that you can't believe any filmmaker, let alone one as hated as Dr. Boll, would deliberately make light of such subjects in order to shock and offend."
‑ Edward Douglas,
"If this movie had been made by an unknown young director, a lot of critics would still be panning the movie for its inconsistencies -- but many others would be praising his courage."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Postal is largely just a byproduct of Boll's self-promotion, rendering the film itself, in essence, beside the point."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Boll mistakes shock for satire and crudity for cleverness in this desperately unfunny, hopelessly clueless catalogue of the ills of America... that ends up rejoicing in what it believes it is sending up."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Boll's self-inflicted dose of Schadenfreude is the only sure shot in this miserable misfire of a satire, which aims for "campy," but hits "crappy" instead."
‑ Chad Greene, Boxoffice Magazine
"Fearlessness isn't inherently funny: Postal's touches of wit are lost in the flying body parts, gross-out gags, and the full frontal spectacle of Foley's no-longer-private parts."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Postal strikes me as marginally superior to Morgan Spurlock's merely boneheaded Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden? But that's like saying Moe is smarter than Curly."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Infantile, irreverent and boorish to the max, Postal explodes with bad attitude and lousy filmmaking."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"The second half of the movie is a mess with only light humor and some audacious bits to liven up the mood."
‑ Chris Carle, IGN Movies
"Is it funny? Not really, but it has isolated flashes of inspiration. Elsewhere, the film is a jumbled, needlessly violent mess, sloppily edited and feckless in its attempts at political satire."
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"In short, we have a trainwreck of a comedy that goes on far longer than you'd care to watch an actual trainwreck, trying too hard to be offensive the entire time and delivering its jokes with the timing of a 2-year-old with a mixing spoon and a soup-pot."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
